1.0  Software requirements

  One of the following operating systems is required:
   -  Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 98 (SE recommended)
   -  Microsoft Windows Millenium
   -  Microsoft Windows NT(R) Version 4.0 - Service Pack 4 or later
   -  Microsoft Windows 2000
   -  Microsoft Windows XP
   -  Microsoft Windows CE V3.0
  Also required is Microsoft ActiveSync Version 3.1 or later (for
  Mobility Client for Windows CE only)

2.0  Hardware requirements

  The Mobility Client for Windows CE provides support for the
  following devices: Handheld PC 2000, Pocket PC 2000, and Pocket PC 2002. 
3.0  Getting help

  Online help is available in the Mobility Client product. 

  See the IBM WebSphere Everyplace Mobility Client User's
  Guide for more information about the types of help that are
  available and instructions on how to access help.

  The guide is in portable document format (PDF) and you will need
  Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 3.0 or greater to display or print it. 
  This guide is located on the web at

4.0  Installing from CD

  If your workstation has a CD drive, you can install the Mobility
  Client directly from CD. Follow the instructions in "Installing
  and configuring the Mobility Client on Windows and Windows CE" in the
  WebSphere Everyplace Mobility Client User's Guide to
  install from CD.
  If you have previously installed, see the IBM WebSphere Everyplace
  Connection Manager Administrator's Guide for information about
  applying maintenance.  

  The guide is in portable document format (PDF) and you will need
  Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 3.0 or greater to display or print it. 
  This guide is located on the web at
  When upgrading from a version prior to, you must stop the
  client prior to upgrading.  If you do not, you may leave the client
  in a corrupted state.  Should this happen, contact IBM support for
  recovery directions.
5.0  Installing from diskettes

  From any workstation that has a CD drive, you can create diskettes of
  the Mobility Client for Windows to install on a client
  system. You will need three high-density, formatted diskettes.

  Use a utility that can split a large file into smaller files that fit
  onto multiple diskettes, such as the IBM-created utility CHOPPER.  Follow
  the instructions for CHOPPER at
  These diskettes can then be taken to a target system and using the same
  CHOPPER utility, recombined into the original single file. When CHOPPER
  splits a file into smaller files, it will copy itself onto the first
  diskette as UNCHOP.EXE. The filename_to_be_transferred is the package-for-
  the-web file in the Win32 or WinCE directories on the installation CD.

  To install Mobility Client from diskettes:
  Recombine the single package file onto the client system or a desktop
  system, then click Start --> Run and specify the package file to extract
  the files and install the Mobility Client.

6.0  New features for version 5.0

   Enhancements for the Mobility Client on the Windows operating systems that
   include seamless cross-network roaming.

   Windows 95 support withdrawn for the Mobility Client
   FIPS 140-2 certification for the Mobility Client for Windows

7.0  Product information

  Windows Platforms
   --  IBM's testing has found that the Mobility Client works better
       on Windows 98 SE than on earlier versions of Windows 98. 
       If your computer supports advanced power management, Windows 98 SE
       makes it possible to suspend your computer without breaking the
       network TCP/IP connections.          
   --  For IBM PCMCIA DataTAC and IBM PCMCIA CDPD modem users:

       If you are using Microsoft Windows 98, power management on the
       PCMCIA modem slot can interfere with the correct operation of
       these modems.  You must disable power management on the PC card
       slots by installing a registry patch.

       To install the patch, run the program regedit.exe from the Start menu,
       Run... prompt.  Select the menu item Registry, Import registry file.
       When prompted, select the file name
       <your cd-rom drive:>\clients\Win32\en\misc\fixes\power.reg.
       You should see an indication that the registry information was
       successfully entered into the registry.  Restart your computer.

   --  If you are installing a modem driver for the first time on
       Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP, or
       Windows Me, you may be prompted to enter a country code and area code
       for your computer.  This is normal, even if the modem is a
       wireless modem that does not make use of this information. 
       Enter the information when prompted.  
   --  When installing the Mobility Client on Windows XP, an "IKernel.exe
       - Application Error" may be encountered. This error is associated
       with InstallShield's kernel engine. Try re-installing the Mobility
       Client. If the error persists, please refer to InstallShield's
       Consumer Central web-site:
       for further instructions. The Document ID associated with this
       problem is Q108190.

   -- When upgrading from a version prior to, you must stop the
      client prior to upgrading.  If you do not, you may leave the client
      in a corrupted state.  Should this happen, contact IBM support for
      recovery directions.
  Windows CE Platforms
   --  If you are using any of the Socket Communications Serial I/O Cards
       (Serial I/O, Dual Serial I/O) on Windows CE to connect to a Mobitex,
       DataTAC, or Dataradio serial modem, the Mobility Client cannot
       accurately detect when the modem is not responding or is
       disconnected, because the I/O card does not always report write
       failures.  As a result, the client may display timeout error
       messages, but might not shut down as it would normally do when
       unable to write to a modem.
   --  If you are using the built-in ActiveSync serial port on a Windows CE
       device to connect to a modem, be sure to choose the modem named
       "Hayes Compatible on COM1:" when setting up your Mobility Client
       connection.  Do not choose "Serial Cable on COM1:" since the Mobility
       Client will not work in this case.  Also, be aware that when
       using the built-in serial port, you will need to use a NULL modem
       adapter or cable to connect to your external modem.
   --  DHCP is not supported for the IBM Mobility Interface for Windows on
       Pocket PC devices.  It is supported on Handheld PC 2000 and
       Pocket PC 2002 devices. The IBM Mobility Interface must be configured
       with a static IP address.  This address must match the IP address
       configured for the user at the Connection Manager.  See "Limitations
       of Mobility Client on Windows CE" in the WebSphere Everyplace
       Mobility Client User's Guide for more information on
       DHCP support.
   --  On all Windows CE devices except Pocket PC 2002 devices,
       a default gateway is not supported for CDPD and other IP-based
       networks.  If you run the Mobility Client over CDPD or other
       IP-based networks, do not configure the IBM Mobility Interface
       as the default interface.  See "Limitations of Mobility Client
       on Windows CE" in the WebSphere Everyplace Mobility Client User's
       Guide for more information on default gateway support.
8.0 Fixed Authorized Problem Analysis Reports (APARs)

Problems resolved with version 5.0 - None at this time

9.0 Late-breaking information

In the Mobility Client for Windows User's Guide Chapter 3, Table 6:
Parameters that describe an interface, an additional row should be
Parameter name - RoamSuspendInactive
Description - When an interface supports suspend/resume (short-hold mode),
then this value determines whether or not to suspend the connection when
when it is not the active interface. A value of 0=do not suspend and a
value of 1=suspend. The default value is 0.
